The Neuroscience Gateway (NSG) has been enabling large scale modeling and data processing for the neuroscience community for about a decade. It provides about twenty neuroscience software for modeling, data processing and AI/ML on supercomputers. Examples of these software are NEURON, NEST, NetPyNE, PyNN, BMTK, BluePyOpt, PGENESIS, Brian2, HNN Core, EEGLAB, FreeSurfer, TensorFlow, PyTorch etc. It is free and open to students and researchers from any country. NSG eliminates administrative and technical barriers to using supercomputers for neuroscience research. The NSG team acquires over 20,000,000 core hours per year on academic supercomputers and fairly distributes to NSG users; NSG currently have over 1,500 users. NSG is also a platform for dissemination of neuroscience software. The workshop speakers are both users of NSG for neuroscience research as well as developers of software that are disseminated via NSG. This workshop will provide the perspective of both users and developers of software regarding how NSG is enabling neuroscience research, training and classroom teaching.
